Are you running your business or is your business running you?
Updated: Jul 26, 2018
It's easy for coaches and consultants to get mired in the daily work of running a business, of getting new business, of serving clients, and wearing a dozen different hats. We end up so close to our business, we no longer see where we're headed.
If you feel like your business is running you rather than you running it, it's time to step back, take a deep breath, and answer some important questions to get back on track.
1. What are your business goals for the short-term, say six months?
2. Who is your audience--the clients you want to serve?
3. What are the priorities you need to set to meet these goals and serve these clients?
4. What are you doing to support your goals?
5. What are you doing that keeps you from supporting your goals?
After you answer these questions, decide what steps you need to take in the next week to get back on track and then make time on your calendar to make them. Set appointments with yourself to focus on those steps and make it happen.
Take a hard look at what is keeping you from supporting your goals. What can you eliminate completely? What can you delegate to someone else?
